here was my first problem. I think I fixed it but now I have a second one.
Firstly as I only have one set of AV inputs into the TV I was trying to work out how can we get the TV and DVD connected to the Freeview. (No, I have no 2nd set of AV's on the front of TV). I have got a scart going from set top box to 3 AV cords that plug into DVD. Then 3 plug AV out from DVD to 3 plug AV into TV. I can watch TV from the DVD EXT1 channel and it records but when I want to change channels it will also change the channel it is recording. How do fix that? Thanks from "tearing my hair out" The $(*&( TV Man took his money and run. No $^%$&#$ good having all this set up and I can't even record!!
